Fit for a Princess

It's finally the weekend, and officially spring break for my daughter. And what do we start out with but a cool, dreary, rainy day. I'm actually thrilled because she is still sleeping. It's 8:00, and that is unheard of for her. I'm sure it is because her room is dark and quiet - those are the best mornings to just stay in bed.

I made this card earlier this week for two challenges. Over at the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge Blog, the challenge this week was to "Say it Out Loud" and use a sentiment on your card. And I combined that with as many items from the new Desert Island Crafter's Challenge that I could! Here's what I got on there from the Queen's Itinerary: Fairytale, Ribbon, Crown Jewels, Horse and Carriage (well, I got the carriage), Prince Charming, and Princess Bride.  6 out of 10 - not bad!

My image is from Pixie Dust Studio, and it's really half an image from the British Invasion collection.  i took the Royal Wedding image (which would have worked fine for this challenge at the DICC) and cut out the Prince. I opted instead for adding a bit of patterned paper that had the words Prince Charming on it and make this card all about the Princess Bride!

Really sweet. Love that you kept the dress white. The rhinestones on the tiara are the "crowning" touch!

Gorgeous. I am impressed with what people are able to create with stamps and cuts and the like. Mine aren't near so creative, but I don't have the time or patience right now to make it *truly* good. Someday though, someday :)
